It’s hard going – but at this stage, it’s new and a lot of fun. ywriter software is making this whole task much easier, because it helps break the novel into chapters, then into scenes.
I know exactly where I’m going in each scene, and roughly how many words per scene to build it into a chapter.
I’ve managed to grab 3 1/2 hours out of my day and write 2,300 words.
Of course, not every day will be like this, but it’s a good start.
